Market Day

This pick-up truck is weighed down with “tonnes” of used clothes, books and other articles that are being taken to the famed “Friday Market” in Bahrain’s Isa Town. This is a common sight on the streets around the venue every Thursday afternoon when the temporary market opened for business.
Over three days, people can buy anything from used furniture, clothes, books, car and machine spare parts, gardening tools and even genuine antiques. Pets (many of them allegedly stolen, and including dogs, cats, parrots, peacocks and rabbits) are also on sale even though they have attracted the attention of animal rights activists.
One can easily find a bargain if one has the patience and the energy to spend time there and weather the extreme summer heat!
